Alternatives to red roses

Roses are red, violets are blue... But must roses be red? There are so many different colours out there. Plus different colours have different meanings. Yellow for joy, happiness and friendship. White for remembrance or new beginnings. Orange for passion and desire. And red - no surprise here - represents love. As nice as it is to feel loved. why not be a little more imaginative? Why give roses when you can give... unicorns?


I am not even joking. You can buy an army of multi-coloured unicorns in bouquet form. 
And if you're a cat lover, you'll adore the kitten version:



Cute, huh? As much as I love cats, I actually prefer the unicorn bouquet. Because in true Despicable Me style...

Are bouquets of flowers becoming "old hat"? Obviously flowers have a shelf life whereas these little bundles of fluff do not. And are red roses becoming "boring"? Or do they remain a classic? If you're bored of red roses, why not go for these?

If your partner has a sweet tooth, perhaps look at bouquets of the edible variety. The Unique Gift Store has amazing variety. Choose between Galaxy, Lindt Lindors, Ferrero Rochers, Thorntons and many more. And the best thing? The majority of their bouquets still look like flowers if you didn't want to stray too far from the traditional floral bouquet...



They also do sock bouquets.... although chocolate will clearly always win over socks



If your love interest is into DIY and crafts, then why not go for a button and brooch bouquet like these?

Whether you're loved up or single, going out or staying in, have a lovely 14th Feb! :)

    1. I would say that chocolate has a better shelf life than flowers, but this probably isn't true in our household.... we go through an insane amount of chocolate very quickly! x x
